National Labour Cooperative Federation (NLCF) Chairman Sanjiv R Kusalkar has reacted strongly to charges leveled by Mr Ashok Dabas, one of the Directors of labour federation during a function at NCUI Complex in New Delhi.
Mr Kulaskar wondered in which capacity Mr Ashok Dabas attends Governing Council meeting of National Cooperative Federation of India (NCUI).In our August meeting his name was replaced by the name of Chairman and it was I who attended the AGM of NCUI. I intend to write to NCUI for deleting his name from the Governing Council list, he added.
Mr Kaulashkar informed indiancooperative.com that the charges leveled by Mr Dabas pertaining to misappropriation of fund are baseless. He said that the federation is passing through rough patches due to investing in the construction of five-storied office building in Delhi and as is even struggling to pay salaries to its employees. Talk of misappropriation of fund in such a situation is only laughable, he added.
I travel to attend Federation’s meeting on my own expense. Even our directors of the Board do likewise. Berating Federation in a public meeting is not an admirable job, the Chairman added.
Readers may recall a story of Indian cooperative Open spat at NFCL programme at NCUI in which it was described how Ashok Dabas denigrated his own federation NFCL during vote of thanks in the programme aimed at highlighting the role of youth and women in cooperative movement by National Labour Cooperative Federation Labour (NLCF) at NCUI in Delhi.
